Try downloading the file, opening it in Irfanview, check the security on the file, I generally strip everything out, make sure it is not an embedded text file, and then re-save it as an Irfanview PDF file. I ran into such problems when pulling public domain stuff off other sites, PDF, video, audio files. I try not to use Adobe or Microsoft applications since often they stick crap in the file which causes corruption.

If this does not work there are other things which can be tried.
